Historic House Hunters: Don’t miss this Classic American Foursquare! Outside, the classic 1900 foursquare rises three stories to a pyramidal hipped roof with large dormers. Deep, welcoming porch (with a porch swing!) shelters the original entrance of double front doors featuring full lights framed with dental molding and topped with a transom, leading into the central hall and the delightfully traditional interior layout. Staircase banister and elaborate trim is all original. On one side, pocket doors open to the front parlor/library with built-ins, with a formal dining room on the other side. A spacious living room/great room features a wood-burning fireplace and glass doors to the back yard. The updated kitchen features custom cabinets and terracotta floors, in keeping with craftsman details found elsewhere, plus another built-in glass fronted display cabinet! Original hardwoods gleam throughout; original wainscoting throughout, original solid wood 5-paneled doors with original hardware, plaster walls, plus a back staircase from the kitchen to the second level! Hall lights are period appropriate antiques. Oil heat and original, ornate cast-iron radiators keeps the home warm and cozy in the wintertime. 4 bright Bedrooms, 2 full baths. Another staircase leads to fully useable third level with even higher ceilings, a loft, big dormered windows and a skylight; this space, once a teenage haven hippy hangout with shag carpet plus an art/drafting studio, is ready to be re-imagined for your current or future life. A side porch invites post-dinner firefly watching, while a secluded garden patio is perfect for morning coffee. A “new” (10 year old) 2-car garage and workshop echoes the design of the house, blending new and old seamlessly. Professional landscaping and large old shade trees are ready for gracious outdoor living, but your four+ acres can also accommodate extensive vegetable or flower gardens, a small green house, chickens or other small livestock, or a horse or pony (or two!). Set back off Mayapple Road, conservation acreage along the road will ensure a sense of privacy, while the back of the property allows direct access into the 16,043-acre Patapsco River Valley State Park, featuring 32 miles of river and 200 miles of trails. Easy access to I-70 and Route 32, commuting for Baltimore, Columbia, Fort Meade, Annapolis Junction, Washington DC or Frederick; convenient to new Marriottsville shopping and services, as well as Ellicott City and Sykesville. Please see disclosures about property address and future 10+/- home subdivision. For a developer/builder buyer, the sellers would consider giving buyers the first right of refusal to purchase the finished lots once neighboring subdivision is recorded.
